Presenter: Orr RM
This module addresses:
Question: What is the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) profile of police
recruits and officers?
movement capability when compared to recruits, with a greater
percentage scoring ≤14 points on the FMS.
Key Practice Points:
• The FMS is a useful outcome measure for police officers.
• FMS movements with poorest performance correspond to injuries
typically sustained in a police population.
• Specific conditioning programs to improve performance in movements
identified with poorer performance may reduce injuries in police officers.
